Happy Halloween! Black Friday is on its way!

We have had a wonderfully busy and gloomy day! It has been raining off and on and quite chilly! Due to the weather we almost didn't go trick or treating but instead altered our plans (like much of the town did) and went to the mall to trick or treat! There were so many families there but we had fun and Shane got his bucket filled with goodies! When we got home we only got a few trick or treaters, probably about 8 or so. We have some leftover goody bags, I will let Shane go through them and he can pick what he wants (besides the candy of course) out of them.

On our way out

We made a brief stop at the grocery store so that I could get all the ingredients to make Crockpot Mulled Cider! When I get around to making that I will definitely post some pictures!

I have found a couple great giveaways as well as an awesome coupon for Yankee Candles. I am very into these candles and I have quite a few of them but I only get them when I can find good deals on them, and this is a good deal! The Yankee Candle deal is Buy 2 Get 2 Free! Yes, TWO FREE Yankee Candles! That is over a $50 savings! This is only valid on Large Jars and Tumblers and ends on November 25th! These would make an excellent gift for someone! Be sure to click the picture below for the coupon! They have many great fall scents to choose from this time of year.
I recently discovered InPink through a giveaway I had entered and I actually won! I have perused their site many times and have found many beautiful pieces that have made their way onto my wish list! I have since ordered my prize using the promotion code I was provided and I cannot wait for them to get here in the mail. This 40% off is an excellent deal and you should make the best of it while it is available! This special will end come Monday November 5th! All you need to do is go to their website, select what you want to order, register or enter your information and be sure to enter the promo code: FRIENDS40 where prompted to enter a code, it's that simple!
Today I also entered in the Max & Ruby Tote Backpack giveaway at MomMomOnTheGo, with the prize being provided by KimmyShop! But wait it gets better, there will be TWELVE winners in this giveaway, each receiving one of these cute little bags! You have an excellent chance of winning this bag for your favorite little one! I checked out KimmyShop's other items as well and they have some great products at very reasonable prices, be sure to head over there! This giveaway will end on November 22nd.

According to Jenny is doing a fabulous giveaway as well! With an awesome Paper Coterie Memory Box as the prize! These are very high quality photo boxes to store your keepsakes in. One winner will receive a 10x10 Paper Coterie Memory box! This is a $36 value! This giveaway runs until November 14th. These nifty little boxes are great if you are anything like me, I have piles of stuff around which I intend on scrap booking when I get the chance to...some of it has been in piles for over 3 years! You can also head over to their page if you don't win and buy one for yourself, first time orders get a free journal as well, just be sure to use promo code WELCOMEJOURNAL at the checkout screen.
Now that Halloween is over, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and for most of us it is time to start thinking about Christmas time and presents. I usually don't go out on Black Friday but have thought about it in the past due to the great deals that can be found. I already have amassed several presents for my boys (yes all of them!!) but I am always looking for a great deal! I will be on the lookout and if I find anything I will be sure to let you know!
